The Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist Course (CPMT) is coming to Omaha, Nebraska.
This Accredited 2-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at the Universal College of Healing Arts (UCHA) in the historic Florence District.
Omaha’s oldest community: The Florence District has more historic sites and historical markers per square mile than any other area in Nebraska. The College building, at the corner of 30th and Clay Streets, is a completely remodeled, 12,500 square foot brick building originating in the 1920’s. Close to Neal Woods Nature Center, the Mormon National Monument, and the campus of the Notre Dame Sisters. It is across the street from Florence Public Library and Recreation Center and the City Park.
The overall purpose of the Universal College of Healing Arts (UCHA) is to pass on the ancient art and science of massage therapy to individuals who wish to develop their natural healing abilities, individuals in transition who wish to create or expand their own healing arts business and healthcare professionals who want to add massage therapy to their practice.

Uncle Sam Cereal is a ready-to eat breakfast cereal, first introduced in 1908 by U.S. Mills of Omaha, Nebraska. The company relocated to Needham, Massachusetts sometime after the 1970s.
In 1908, company founder Lafayette Coltrin of Omaha was instructed by his personal physician to add flaxseed to his diet. Coltrin so enjoyed the taste of toasted flaxseed on whole wheat flakes that he ate during breakfast that he decided to market the combination. Given his resemblance to Uncle Sam, Coltrin named his new cereal after the mythical patriotic character. The top-hatted silhouette of "Uncle Sam" on the side of the box is actually Coltrin's, or so the story goes.
In 1939, the world premiere of the film Union Pacific was held in Omaha, Nebraska and the accompanying three-day celebration drew 250,000 people. A special train from Hollywood to Omaha carried director Cecil B. DeMille and stars Barbara Stanwyck and Joel McCrea.

Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
